Media and Communication Studies at Freie Universität is offered as a combination bachelor’s program, which consists of one major (typically 90 credits) and one or two minor subjects (one 60-credit minor or two 30-credit minors). Media and Communication Studies can be chosen either as major (90 credits) or as minor (60 credits) through other study programs. Students can choose their majors and minors from a broad range of subjects unless a specific combination is required: Combination options for core subjects with modules (pdf-file, in German).
